Why's yoga so powerful?
Even when you're first drawn to yoga as a mode of exercise, chances are, at some point, you've experienced some of the mental & spiritual benefits of yoga as well.
Yoga's often the gateway practice into a more mindful & conscious life.
And, indeed yoga is one of the three sister sciences, a trinity of Ayurveda, Yoga, and something called Jyotish.
On today's episode, Elora Herberick, founder of EVOLVE Mindset Yoga shares how yoga's influenced her own life. We talk about the importance of breath, the benefits of restorative yin yoga, and the power of yoga beyond the mat.
Several of the resources Elora mentions in this episode are:
- Breath by James Nestor
Elora's the director & owner of EVOLVE Yoga Wellness Nutrition. Elora's practiced yoga on and off the mat since she was six years old.
She studied Ashtanga Vinyasa through an intensive 200 hr training at All Yoga School in Thailand in 2017 and received her 300 hr training in Yin and Restorative Yoga with My Vinyasa Practice in 2020.
As a 500 hr Yoga Alliance Registered Instructor she has been teaching in New Milford, Connecticut and surrounding areas for the past 6 years.
Through her practice she has learned that yoga is not only about the physical daily practice of beautiful and challenging poses; but also about mastering the mind, the breath, and the spirit.
She aims to bring together the ancient yoga discipline with modern science and sustainability. She believes that the path forward is through community, connection, and healthy lifestyle choices for our bodies, minds, and our planet.
